Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) met with Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) Friday in his Washington office. The two discussed the clear lack of leadership coming from the Department of Homeland Security, particularly after the Director of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) testified the Department released 2,228 illegal immigrants in February for “budgetary reasons,” including 10 individuals who are the highest level of offenders. Sen. Cornyn wrote to Secretary Napolitano last week to express outrage with the actions of DHS in response to sequestration. With the ongoing debate over immigration reform, Sen. Cornyn and Gov. Perry also discussed the need for the federal government to step up security efforts along the Texas-Mexico border.
